- Consumerism -- especially related to "church shopping," and "church hopping" (two terms I LOATHE) and the tendency of clergy to denounce consumeristic tendencies in parishioners and then switch churches every couple of years.
- The challenges of "twentysomethings" ministry -- the people who have the most to give (time, $, etc., and yet statistically do the least in the church and are the least dedicated.)
- The viability of the "church-within-a-church" model -- is it sustainable? Is it even desirable? Is it biblical?
- The christian "ghetto" -- how many church services/small groups/etc. should I be going to each week? How much of my time should be filled up with "church stuff" as compared to the time I have available to hang out with neighbors and get involved in my community?
That's all for now...if there's something that really piques your interest, let me know. I'm hoping that Catalyst will give me some time to think about some of these things!
